"The founder and editor of the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, has been charged in Sweden with rape and molestation, a spokeswoman for the Swedish prosecutor's office told CNN Saturday.

Spokeswoman Karin Rosander said the charges were filed Friday night, but she didn't have further details."

Is it just me or does this seem somewhat contrived? How convenient that the man that has pissed off the entire military industrial complex is suddenly charged with rape.

Don't get me wrong; he seems like an arrogant little twit and I really don't care what happens to him. However, I think that he has the right to publish what he did. The bad guy in the Wikileaks story is the person that stole the files to begin with. Beyond that, the press has the right and the responsibility to do with them as they please. Think Pentagon Papers.

And that's why it seems all too convenient that Assange is suddenly charged with rape. The powers that be know he probably can't be shut down on the grounds that he broke a law by releasing the information he did and further, he has stated that he intends to release more. So, send a girl to his room, get her in bed with him, get a good semen sample and scream rape.

Who knows; maybe he did rape someone. He certainly seems sleazy enough when I see him on TV. And if he did, send the bastard away for good.

I'm just not going to jump to conclusions here.
